"WASHINGTON — The husband of President Obama's Labor secretary nominee paid about $6,400 Wednesday to settle tax liens that had been outstanding for as long as 16 years against his business, the Obama administration told USA TODAY this afternoon.
The disclosure came shortly before a scheduled 2 p.m. meeting of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, which will vote on Rep. Hilda Solis' nomination as labor secretary. The hearing was postponed; no reason was immediately revealed."

Uh...probably because it's becoming VERY CLEAR that the politically connected don't have to pay their goddamned taxes and THEY GET AWAY WITH IT FOR FUCKING DECADES.

If that was you or me, we'd be UNDER the frikken jail.

TWO SETS OF LAWS - one for the politically connected AND ONE FOR THE REST OF US.

:mad::mad::mad:

I'm a bit ticked off...can ya tell?

Ticked off . . . Yeah, you AND me, MsD!

For them, it is all just a little error, no problem. For us, it would be tax evasion. Yes, we would be under the jail and everything that we own would be confiscated.

Not only do they get away with it, but some actually benefit because of or inspite of their failure to pay their taxes ---- Geithner comes to mind . . .

There are definitely two sets of rules/laws in the country. One for the "too big to fails", which includes not only Wall Street and the banks but politicians as well. And an second set of rules for us "too small to save" . . . .

This is all stupid shit...rigged game...SCRIPTED stuff!!!

All this dirt came out only because they WANTED to...Obama is sending signals to the people that he maynot be as honest as they expected him to be..or maybe worse in some cases, it's just a psyops , 'softening up' the masses for what lies ahead!!!

Don't worry, the end result will be exactly what you have guessed.

Even though I made very little money in 2008, I am now being shaken down for 1200 dollars in Federal taxes.

Perhaps my Senator will let me slide? I mean, no one in government pays taxes. Does that mean we can decide whether we feel like paying or not?

NOOOOO!!!!

If you or I don't pay, we will be jailed and if we resist that, the state will do what it always does - escalate until they get to kill us.

Evidently it is pretty easy to make a mistake and not pay your taxes, and not have any consequences. Just say you've made a mistake if you are called on it in the future and pay what you owe.

If I had any income, I'd pay income taxes. But since I have no income, I can't make any mistakes. However I expect that I might end up making some mistakes in the future. I think I'll start memorizing Geithner's defense in front of the confirmation committee since it is now a matter of law, and public record. I think the confirmation of Geithner set a legal precedent.

No, the more mistakes I make on paying my taxes, the more obedient I am to the "change" this administration wants to give to the nation.

Hail to the chief! ;):p

Remember, if one mistake is good, then two mistakes must be twice as good. :)

This is getting ridiculous. I can now officially begin saying "I told you so" to all of my obama supporting "friends". Sigh.

wow, I hate this guy.

He's not that innocent.

Don't forget to tell your friends to make sure they don't 'cheat' like all his (Obama's) buddies have because they might not be so lucky when the IRS comes knocking on their door! ;)
